Aside from their Iraq policy, the Australian Labor party does seem to be moving rightwards. First, they defied the soft line on illegal immigration passionately espoused by their own Left-wing. Second, Labor has made an unexpected "about face" on the failed organization for blacks that it itself created. And now the femocrats are losing out in favour of families.

Socialized medicine again: "Up to 55 per cent of patients needing admission to emergency departments are being forced to wait more than eight hours for a hospital bed, new figures show." Fortunately, Australia has a large private medical system as well.

Dick McDonald has just put up a lot of good posts. I liked this one on the advantages of federalism: "The minute Tiger Woods turned pro, he moved from California to Florida. Only the blind won't recognize that rather than pay California income tax of $10 Million per year, why not move to Florida that doesn't impose any income tax?" In Australia a similar thing happened. My home State of Queensland abolished inheritance taxes. Result? Elderly Australians flocked here. Upshot? The other States had to abolish their inheritance taxes too!

My recipe for today is a Thai classic: Larb moo. It is their version of savoury pork mince. Simple, quick and tasty. See here.



The Left have always wanted more spent on welfare and made "Fascism" a swear-word. President Bush deposed a brutal Fascist dictator and sponsored a big expansion of welfare. But instead of being admired by the Left, he is hated with a passion. What does that tell you about the Left? It tells you that they have no principles at all: That everything they have ever claimed to stand for is fake.

Three more examples of Leftist dishonesty: They blame the 9/11 attacks on "poverty" in the Islamic world. Yet most of the attackers were Saudis and Saudi Arabia is one of the world's richest countries! They also say that they oppose racism yet support "affirmative action" -- which judges people by the colour of their skin! They say that they care about "the poor" but how often do you hear them calling for the one thing that would bring about a worldwide economic boom in poor countries -- the USA and the EU abandoning their agricultural protectionism? Leftists obviously care more about conservative farmers than they do about the poor!

America is engaged in a titanic struggle with hate. The American Left hate America, much of Europe hates America and, most of all, the Islamic fundamentalists hate America. Fortunately America is -- in every sense -- the world's strongest country.
